Not a very good experience here at all. For starters the wifi is extremely slow, the showers are mouldy, the staff aren't very nice (one staff member constantly death-starred us every time we walked past), the noise rules are enforced when they feel like it, the walls are paper-thin and the laundry facilities "aren't working at the moment". However I must say the rooms are kept very clean, the location is pretty good and drinks from the bar are reasonably priced. Expect exactly what you pay for.

The hostel is right near everything, only a short walk to all the sights. The room was clean however the rooms and facilities are very basic. It is cheap but if you're looking for somewhere to stay that's modern and has facilities to offer don't choose this hostel.

This hostel is okay. There is someone at reception 24 hours. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to Brandenburg Gate, and just down the road from Checkpoint Charlie. 6 bed dorm was spacious. Ensuite bathroom smelled like a man's urinal or some sort of sewage problem. Wifi wasn't the best most of the time. Despite staying here as a couple, I was the only female in the dorm. I feel like the hostel should make an effort to even out the genders in mixed dorms.

Everything was really nice in the hostel: the room, the bed, the hostel in general. It was only disappointing by the staff in the reception that wasn't friendly (the guy in the morning was horrible and the girl later was ok) and I had the feeling that they were forced to be there and to be helpful (which wasn't that much and me and my girlfriend had to figure what to see and visit by ourselves - they only gave a map).

It was quite inconvenient that there was no washing basin in the room that guests would have to go to the the washrooms to wash hands and brush their teeth. Also, there were no signs to show you the way to the shower or the toilet which was quite confusing. And it was quite noisy at night as there were a lot of people laughing and talking loudly in the corridor and the terrace. However, the location of the hostel was very convenient and close to the U-bahn station and the tourist attractions.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hostel with a great location then Cityhostel is the one. It's not far from an underground and the Brandenburg Gate is about 15-20 minutes away on foot. However for us the main issue was the toilets. There is a large corridor with quite a lot of people and only 3 toilets. It served its purpose however so if that doesn't bother you then go for it. Also the wifi is pretty poor is the hostel.

The rooms are a very good size with modern beds and lockers. They're ensuite and there are also extra bathrooms along the halls. They offer buffet breakfast as well as the chance to purchase a packed lunch. It is €6.50 for a wash and dry of clothing that's with the powder/liquids provided. The hostel is located literally a 30 second walk away from the nearest underground station and about a 20 minute walk to many attractions. Would highly recommend this hostel for a trip to Berlin.
